Cole Pruett - Operations Manager

Cole is originally from San Diego and started working for our San Diego office fourteen years ago as a laborer. Cole went from digging holes and pulling weeds to moving up through various positions within our company to become an Account Manager. After nine years with us, he went to work for another company and worked his way up to Operations Manager. At that point, Cole came back to us as the Operations Manager for Ground Specialties in 2016.

Cole holds several certifications, including: backflow tester, recycled water site supervisor, water manager, and more. Cole has always appreciated how supportive everyone in our company is and how willing people are to pass down knowledge of the industry. Cole's favorite thing about his job is being outside and in the office (not being stuck in one or the other). He also enjoys being able to meet people from all over the country and hear their stories.
